Wow, some of you have got your energy costs low. We pay 150 a month - 3 bed mid-terrace. Although we are about 300 in credit currently. It is an old cavity-less house that leaks like a sieve though.

Neighbours have probably turned their heating off,  using yours that is creeping through the adjoining walls !!.

I'm about to sign up with B Gas as they are the cheapest on comparison sites. What size house do you have as I have 4 bed so was wondering how your price compares

Large 3 bed detached (similar in size to a 4 bed).
Combi boiler, led light bulbs, good insulation and modern windows. All helps. Oh, and me moaning about stuff being left switched on  Smiley

This thread is quite interesting for me as we have just moved into a 4 bed detached property that is 150+ years old so requires the heating on a fair amount given the recent cold weather. Our bill with Octopus is 130 per month I think.

I think the key is to take monthly meter readings to stay on top of your usage regardless of your provider. I currently pay bulb 80 a month and they regularly contact me to alter payments. The most it's ever been is 85.
I do not scrimp on gas/electric and live in a large 1970s 3 bed semi (family of 4 with a fridge freezer + a deep freezer and also a fridge in the converted garage. No cavity wall insulation but loft is done) My actual usage bill for January was 120 but overpaying other months offsets this. I don't get rebates but don't get into the red either.

No. If it's really cold it might come on during the night, but it's kept in the warmest part of the house, so rarely does.

Neighbours have probably turned their heating off,  using yours that is creeping through the adjoining walls !!.

Funny you should say that. Some of our internal walls that we share with one side are only single skin and in one room only a stud wall (the house was split in along it's length some time in the early 20th century). Neighbours had a leak once and it came along their floor boards and under our shared stud wall.
